I've had a candle biz for 5 years and use wonderful oils from Natures Garden, they are wonderful. You do need a business license and state ID number to order (I believe that's still the case)But it would be worth a try, that may have been for tax reasons.... and I have had rave reviews about my candles. I only make about 3 batches a year now for some die hard fans, myself and my family. It takes a lot of time as with anything to manufacture etc. as a biz but I hear ya, I love candles too, that's what prompted me to make my own. So do check out Natures Garden online and see if you can order through them and let me know what you think about them.....Good luck!!
